Industrial Applications of Computers:  Industrial Applications of Computers Robotics Robots and Robotics:  Robots and Robotics The word robot was first used by Karel Capek in his 1921 play “Rossum’s Univesal Robots”. They were perfect tireless workers who performed manual labor for human beings Robotics is the science or technology of robots, their design, manufacture, application, and use Industrial Robots:  Industrial Robots Are reprogrammable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move materials, tools, or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions for the performance of variety of tasks Use of Robots in Industry:  Use of Robots in Industry Today 90% of all robots used are found in factories and they are referred to as industrial robots. Ten years ago, 9 out of 10 robots were being bought by auto companies - now, only 50% of robots made today are bought by car manufacturers. Robots are slowly finding their way into warehouses, laboratories, research and exploration sites, energy plants, hospitals, even outer space. Robots are useful in industry for a variety of reasons. Installing robots is often a way business owners can be more competitive, because robots can do some things more efficiently than people. Why robots and what can they do?:  Why robots and what can they do? Robots never get sick or need to rest, so they can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When the task required would be dangerous for a person, they can be do the work instead. Robots don't get bored, so work that is repetitive and unrewarding is no problem for a robot.
